Rickmansworth Skip Hire FAQs
How long will it take to get a skip in Rickmansworth?
We can normally deliver skips to Rickmansworth the following working day when an order is confirmed before 3pm. This applies to orders made between Monday and Friday.
Our online booking system gives you a variety of delivery dates to select from. So whether you need the skip delivered ASAP or want to schedule delivery for a later date, it’s not a problem.
Can I dispose of electrical products in my skip?
Unfortunately this is not allowed, as electronic items such as old TVs, fridges, printers and computer monitors are classed as hazardous waste. Due to The Waste Electric and Electronic Equipment (WEEE) Regulations 2013, these items must be kept separate so they can be recycled and disposed of in a secure and environmentally friendly way.
Can I have a skip delivered on the road in Rickmansworth?
In the vast majority of cases, your skip can be delivered on your driveway, the highway, path or grass verge and deliveries can be made to your house or workplace. If you want the skip to be located on land outside of your company or home, you have got to obtain authorisation from the local authority in Rickmansworth, which is called a permit. If necessary, we will be happy to organise this on your behalf, therefore it’s one less issue to worry about. The council will charge a fee for the skip license, plus you should be aware before ordering that securing the permit can often take up to 2 working days.
Am I allowed to throw all sorts of waste in the skip?
It is possible to put a wide array of rubbish in the skip. This can include wood, bathroom tiles, metal or rubble from a house clearance. Tree and bush cuttings, soil and stone from garden jobs are permitted as well. Dated cabinets from your kitchen and old bathroom fittings can also be thrown in a skip.
However, there are some items that you can’t put in a skip because of the possible ecological or health risk they might trigger.
You can’t throw in your refrigerator, laptop or car tyres. Asbestos, paint or chemical waste is also not allowed in the skip. All of these things include hazardous elements in one kind or another. They must be disposed of separately from your normal waste.
Should you require hazardous waste removal, we may be able to arrange a separate service for this material. Feel free to email us for more details. Alternatively, if you are a residential customer, you might be able to take this kind of waste to your local council run recycling facility.
How much does skip hire in Rickmansworth cost?
Our aim is to offer the lowest priced skip hire service in Rickmansworth. The price you pay will, of course, be determined by the size of skip you hire. This varies from the mini skip, which is the cheapest choice, all the way up to the 40 yard RORO container. If you wish to have a skip positioned on the road or other council property, you will also have to factor in the added price of the skip permit.
How much waste can you fit in a mini skip?
The mini skip is the smallest size offered and may describe either the 2 or 3 yard skip. These compact bins are fantastic for small DIY tasks and domestic clearances. Their small footprint makes them excellent for driveways.
They can be used to get rid of all types of waste materials, from house furniture and broken baby toys to paving blocks and concrete. Having a volume of around 25-30 bags of rubbish, the mini skip will save you needing to make multiple trips to your local recycling centre.
What happens to the waste in my skip?
The materials in the skip will be taken to a local waste transfer centre. Here the rubbish will be segregated by machinery and also by hand into various waste streams, like soil, cardboard, stone and wood. Sorting the waste in this manner helps to maximise the amount that can be reused and recycled. Our aim and motivation is to maximise recycling and minimise the volume of waste ending up in landfill.

Will you deliver skips across Hertfordshire?
Along with delivering skips and containers to Rickmansworth, we can also deliver to other towns and villages throughout Hertfordshire. Through a network of regional and national skip companies, we provide you with a totally nationwide service. So whether you require a skip delivering to Rickmansworth, Potters Bar or Tring, we have got you covered.
Am I allowed to pile up the waste in my skip?
It is very important never to overload your skip, as you run the risk of being required to take out surplus waste before it can be picked up. Regardless of the size you order, you are only permitted to fill them to a level load. This is a basic safety requirement, since transporting an overloaded skip will be dangerous, as waste could fall and result in personal injury or damage to others.
To avoid this issue, please make sure you hire a size suited to your waste removal needs. If your skip is full but you have some extra rubbish to dispose of, we are happy to provide an exchange.
What size roll-on roll-off containers are available?
The RORO (roll-on roll-off) is a large container that can be used to dispose of huge volumes of waste materials. In most cases, these skips are hired for business applications. Having said that, domestic clients can also order them. You will need to take into account the area they will take up, since they measure between 20 and 40 cubic yards. Due to this, they must only be hired for light materials such as paper, timber and cardboard, and are not suitable for the removal of garden soil and stone.
Will a Rickmansworth skip hire company deliver my skip?
To provide a complete skip hire and waste management service in towns and villages throughout the UK, we work with a number of local and nationwide companies. This enables us to cover all corners of the UK and helps to guarantee we are able to provide customers with the most affordable and reliable skip hire service.
Do all skips come with a drop door?
For anyone who is hiring a builder’s skip, the likelihood is that it will include a drop-down door. This is perfect for disposing of heavy building and demolition waste, as it can be walked in the skip using a wheelbarrow.
Some mini skips and 4 cubic yarders also feature a drop down door, though these are generally more uncommon. This is because these sizes are typically low enough at the ends to be able to tip a wheelbarrow of waste into them.
If you require a drop door for your job, let us know when placing your order. We will do our best to make sure a container with a drop door is provided.
What are the different skip sizes to choose from?
Our company offers a complete variety of skip sizes to household and commercial clients all over the UK. We have a skip to match all needs – from the humble 2 yard mini skip to the enormous 40 cubic yard roll-on roll-off container.
Listed below are the various sizes on offer, with a rough guide to how much rubbish each size can hold:
- 2 Cubic Yard – 20-30 bin bags
- 4 Cubic Yard – 30-40 bin bags
- 6 Cubic Yard – 50-60 bin bags
- 8 Cubic Yard – 60-80 bin bags
- 10 Cubic Yard – 80-100 bin bags
- 12 Cubic Yard – 100-120 bin bags
- 14 Cubic Yard – 120-140 bin bags
- 16 Cubic Yard – 140-160 bin bags

Should I stay in when the skip will be delivered?
It is always best if you can be available when anyone delivers anything to your home. That allows you to make sure there is access for your delivery, plus the skip can be placed precisely where you want it.
The same goes for those who have a business. If you have a gate or security, it might not be possible to have a skip delivered when you are not there.
Nonetheless, if it is unavoidable and the access is not an issue, you do not have to be there when the skip is delivered.
How long can I hire the skip for?
The price of hiring a skip will normally have a hire period of up to 2 weeks. In most cases, that provides you with sufficient time to load the skip. However, if you do need more time, contact us, and we will see what we can do.
Needless to say, if you finish with your skip sooner, we are happy to arrange a pick up. Just let us know when you have finished, and we will organise to send out one of our drivers to pick up the skip as soon as possible.
How much waste can a builders skip hold?
The phrase builder’s skip can relate to two sizes – the 6 cubic yard and 8 cubic yard skip. The term comes from the fact that these are the most popular sizes hired by builders and tradespeople.
These large containers are great for a multitude of domestic and commercial jobs. They are the largest skip sizes that you can use for heavy builders waste including dirt, rubble and bricks.
